    Utter crap! Why change the story so much? Kevin has finally dropped the ball with this and Ultrons origin in Avengers 2. Plus “The Twins” is utter crap.

    Dump aging Antman (Douglas) before it is too late. Dump this whole story line. If you can’t do it right at this time. Cancel and/or dump this.

    Antman has been just fine until the scum of Hollywood can knocking. I’m a comic book fan. You’re a Hollyweird Dweeb.

    This looks absolutely awesome. I can’t wait to see the first trailer. Love Rudd and Stoll and the two of them will definitely make great enemies. Definitely going to be one of Marvels best.

    @Chris: You mean someone who sits back quietly while their favorite character gets crapped on? He’s a comic fan not a kindergartner. I’ll reserve judgement but nothing coming out of this since Wright quit is sounding good.

    Marvel has just lost their collective minds. There are so many established origin stories and crossovers that screwing them up doesn’t make sense. Tony Stark didn’t create Ultron, Hank Pym did! If you are making an AntMan movie why screw up 2 movies. And don’t me started on the Fantastic Four movie. Ridiculous casting. The producers don’t care about what fans want. They THINK they know better. I’m sure it will make money but that doesn’t make it a good film. Just look at Michael Bay. His Transformers crap sells although EVERYONE agrees that they stink, and now look at TMNT. Just awful!!!!
